As father of the groom – I now rise for a toast
But first a little history – About these two, I might even boast
Coleman is our oldest – And works with me each day
He’s a graduate of James Madison – But McDonald’s gives him his pay!!
Ginny graduated from Virginia Tech – She’s an interior designer by trade
She loves to shop for shoes – As a buyer she’s unafraid
They both love going to the gym – It’s a time for them to share
And Coleman loves to party – When he does, he hasn’t a care!!
They grew up around the corner – But not connected till later in life
It happened at my 50th birthday – Soon they’ll be man and wife
Coleman had his brothers – Write the proposal in the sand
Then he took Ginny for a walk – Kneeling down, he asked for her hand!!
I wish for you both a wonderful marriage – Just like Melinda’s and mine
Have fun and talk a lot – And give me a grand daughter so divine
Coleman said he wasn’t nervous – But I don’t believe that it’s true
He came to work looking spiffy – Wearing two different colored shoes!!
But now please join me – As we toast my son and his future wife
Let’s all lift our glasses – And wish them a wonderful life
May your love continue to grow – And all your dreams come true
May you both keep smiling – And be successful at what you do!!
